  • Dashiro is a modern ramen shop that has been in business since 2017. It rapidly gained popularity among local ramen lovers, which led to the opening of two sister shops: Dashiro Mix and Dashiro Nibo. All three are conveniently located in downtown Sendai, close to tourist attractions and shopping streets, like Sendai Mediatheque and Jozenji-Dori Avenue.

    Nibo is known for its flavorful fish-based dashi broths. Their high-quality house-made noodles, combined with their signature dashi, make for a flavorful bowl of ramen rich with umami. Many overseas visitors think of ramen as one of Japan’s must-eat dishes, so Nibo put their delicious fish-based dashi to good use and developed their very own Muslim-friendly, pescatarian ramen recipe. Designed specifically with Muslim customers in mind, this delicious halal ramen is made using carefully selected ingredients, including shredded kombu, shiitake mushrooms, yuzu, Japanese mackerel, and halal-certified Sendai aburafu. It is meat free (if you don’t count fish). Instead of finishing the dish with lard, for halal ramen Nibo uses vegetable oil.

    The halal ramen costs ¥950 and can be ordered form the ticket machine just like their regular ramen. The machine is located just inside the door on the left. Follow the instructions on the English halal ramen sign next to the machine. If you need help, feel free to ask the staff for assistance. One staff member lived in the US for a while, so speaks English well.

    If you find yourself in the “lucky seat,” you can score an order of their signature sardine paste by saying “nibo miso kudasai.” Definitely feel free to experiment with it, although it might not go well with the mackerel flavor of the halal ramen.
